Roasted Asparagus Recipe
There are many ways to cook asparagus, for example: sauteed asparagus, but I also love this quick, delicious and easy garlic oven roasted asparagus.
Asparagus is one of my favorite greens, it’s always fun to eat, as I nibble down the top of the asparagus all the way to the stem, just like eating a tree!
